About the Property

2 bedrooms plus den; 2 full baths; sleeps 4

Welcome to 'Almost Paradise' - Bella Lago at Bay Beach is a beautiful Mediterranean-style condominium, overlooking a fountain-sprayed lake. Built in 2006, this luxury condo is located at the up-scale, south end of Fort Myers Beach and directly across the street from seven miles of white sugar sand beach and warm Gulf waters.

The spacious two-bedroom plus den unit (1,571 square feet) with nine foot ceilings is decorated in tropical Tommy Bahama style. In the mornings, step through the sliding glass doors onto the furnished lanai to view the sunrise and watch the blue heron, egrets, and osprey fishing in Bella Lago ('beautiful lake'). In the evenings, enjoy sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico.

If you have never stayed at Bella Lago you will love the extra amenities at this beach complex. A large, in-ground, heated pool right next to our building, hot tub, gas grill and plenty of lounge chairs and umbrella- tabled seating areas, along with a fantastic fitness center make for a great start to your vacation!

Santini Marina plaza is only a 2 minute walk from the complex where you can find numerous boutiques for shopping, along with a multitude of island restaurants suiting everyone in your party. Fish Tale Marina (behind Santini) can take you out on boating excursions, sunset tours, and fishing charters. Or for the adventurous, rent your own boat or kayak and explore the waters of Estero Bay on your own.

Trolley stops heading both north and south bound can be found right on Estero Blvd. Head a little bit south and check out Lovers Key State Park and miles of secluded beaches. Going north you will find Times Square, lots of shopping and more restaurants, along with some of our great island nightlife!
